[conventions] Worldcon, Day One

calendula_witch and I got into our hotel yesterday afternoon early enough for an hour of downtime, post-travel. We headed (briefly) for the lobby bar, then off to a late dinner with the METAtropolis gang — Steve Feldberg, John and Krissy Scalzi, Elizabeth Bear, Tobias Buckell and Karl Schroeder. A very nice evening of Japanese food and entertaining conversation.

Back at the Delta, I hit the Tor party for a while, as she did BarCon downstairs. Eventually we hooked up once more and headed for home at the Holiday Inn. My early morning breakfast canceled after I went to sleep, so my alarm went off at oh:dark:stupid for no good reason, but now I'm tooling up for Stroll With the Stars, my first stop on what promises to be a very long day. calendula_witch, wise woman that she is, is sleeping in, then taking some yoga and writing time this morning.
